The Giants will induct the first 30 members of their new Ring of Honor at halftime of Sunday night's game against the Bears. The team has released the names of all those who will be honored.

OWNERS: Tim Mara, Wellington Mara, Jack Mara and Bob Tisch

GENERAL MANAGER: George Young

COACHES: Steve Owen, Jim Lee Howell and Bill Parcells

PLAYERS: Mel Hein, Ken Strong, Tuffy Leemans, Emlen Tunnell, Frank Gifford, Rosie Brown, Sam Huff, Andy Robustli, Y.A. Tittle, Harry Carson, Lawrence Taylor, Al Bozis, Charlie Conerly, Dick Lynch, Joe Morrison, Pete Gogolak, George Martin, Phil Simms, Michael Strahan, Jessie Armstead, Amani Toomer and Tiki Barber

“The Ring of Honor and a Hall of Fame are elements that have been discussed for quite some time,” Giants president and CEO John Mara said in the team's press release. “For many years fans have asked us why we had neither, and our response always was that we would when either Giants Stadium undergoes a refurbishing or we have a new stadium. So it was important that we have one or the other in our new building, and it has worked out that we now have both a Ring of Honor and a Legacy Club to recognize the great players and coaches and others who have made our organization what it is.”

“The Ring of Honor and the Legacy Club are great reminders for all of us of the responsibility we have in upholding the tradition of those who came before us,” chairman and executive vice president Steve Tisch said. “We are very proud of the individuals who are being inducted into the Ring, and we recognize them for their contributions to our organization with tremendous gratitude.”
